How To Buy Tickets

Lecture Tickets


We hope you can join us for our Winter 2022 series entitled “China: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” beginning Thursday, January 13th, 2022.  From the comfort of your home, you will be able to listen to our experts, watch their slides on your device and interact with them through your questions and comments.   

Technical Requirements:  The lectures will be delivered to you using “Zoom” webinar technology.  Lectures will be presented on Thursdays at 1:30 pm, and will not be recorded.  You will need a computer with audio speakers, reliable access to the internet, and an email address.  A tablet or smart phone will also work, but smaller screen sizes will restrict the extent to which you are able to see the speakers and/or slides.  Technical support will be provided. 

How To Purchase Your Winter 2022 Tickets - Lectures begin January 13th !

Tickets can be purchased through Centre in the Square from November 18th, 2021 until January 27th, 2022.  The price is $50 ($44.25+HST) for the entire 8-week series.  Tickets to individual lectures will not be available.  Because the lectures will be held virtually, we will be unable to sell tickets “at the door”. 

The following options to purchase tickets are available:*

  • Online:  Use this link to access the Centre in the Square’s KW Tickets page and follow the instructions: Centre in the Square  (Alternatively, you can go directly to the Centre in the Square’s website and click on the “Buy Tickets” button in the top right-hand corner.)
  • Phone:  Call the Centre in the Square box office (519-578-1570 or 1-800-265-8977).
  • In person:  Visit the Centre in the Square box office at 101 Queen Street North, Kitchener.

The on-line and phone options require a credit card.  Cheques can be used in person at the box office.

You will be asked for an email address.  A few days before the first lecture, Centre in the Square will email instructions on how to attend the virtual lecture series, so it’s important that they have your current email address.  We will also send lecture reminders to your email address.  No paper tickets will be issued. (Note: If you purchase your ticket online or by phone, you should receive a ticket purchase confirmation email. If you do not receive that email, try checking your junk/spam/trash folders, Promotions tab for Gmail users, or double-check your email address with the Centre in the Square box office.)   

In the event of ticketing problems, please call the Centre in the Square box office or you can email

*Please note that should there be any changes to COVID-19 restrictions, Centre in the Square’s ability to offer phone and in person sales could be impacted.
